IBA builds its publications from the wealth of proprietary data and market intelligence our InsightIQ platform delivers.
Our Aircraft Values Book contains information about 66 of the most commonly traded commercial passenger aircraft globally.
Published twice a year, it presents the market, current base and future base values for each aircraft type as well as market information and aircraft data. We include order book history, annual delivery rates, fleet size and status, geographical distribution, engine selection and historic availability.
IBA presents values in accordance with principles set out by ISTAT, the International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading.
IBA's Engine Values Book provides airline operators, financiers, leasing companies, MROs and OEM manufacturers with a comprehensive information source on the current state of the global engine market.
We deliver information on the market characteristics, associated aircraft types, geographic scope and operator base of 33 of the most commonly traded families of aero engines. Our publication includes key maintenance data such as typical average overhaul costs and maintenance intervals, Quick Engine Change (QEC) and Life Limited Parts (LLP) costs and values and lease rates for the most popular variants of each engine family.
IBA lists current market, base and forecast values for the most popular turbofan engines over a 10-year period and includes all key Airworthiness Directives (ADs) and their estimated cost impact for each engine type.
The Lease Rate Digest provides monthly lease rates for 69 of the most commonly leased commercial passenger aircraft. It specifies the monthly high and low lease rates for each year of build, based on standard contract terms and conditions. It analyses multiple aircraft types with similar capacity and establishes their Rate Profiles.
Used alone or in conjunction with IBA's Aircraft Values Book, the Lease Rate Digest gives operators, banks, leasing companies and manufacturers invaluable insights into the current condition of the lease market for passenger aircraft.

As the aviation industry begins to wake from its slumber in a post Covid-19 landscape, many of us have wondered what the future holds for new aircraft technologies. How will the leading OEMs and their respective stakeholders address commitment to a carbon neutral aviation industry by 2050? In recent years, development of battery-powered aircraft concepts has continued, various new start up ventures exploring this propulsion technology, its possible applications and the regulatory hurdles and infrastructure challenges battery-powered aircraft face. There have been no concrete commitments to purely electric aircraft by the leading OEMs owing to the energy density (or lack thereof) vs weight penalties inherent in flying intercontinental routes. This, however, doesn’t mean there isn’t a place in the market for electric propulsion; it has great potential for short regional flights with smaller capacity cabins operating out of airports and aerodromes that would typically not accept commercial traffic.
Flybe was one of the earliest airline victims of the Coronavirus pandemic, ceasing commercial operations in March 2020. With recent news of a potential revival, IBA explores the former Flybe fleet in terms of redeployment, asset value and the status of the restart.
